Abandoned house and all, it was an amazing November afternoon. The air was warm as the fall was trying to throw one last party before the winter takes control. The trees, already tucked in their winter beds and lightly asleep, briefly woke to see if spring had already arrived. The grass holding on for dear life, still showing it’s green color, cushioned my feet as I drifted from the curving sidewalk into a world of dog poo, spider webs and earthen mounds. It was a lovely day and one that I gladly share with you.

My favorite time of year, although New Jersey missed out because of the storm. It’s okay, I’ll live vicariously through your gorgeous photographs. Thank you!
Thanks seakist. Sorry y’all missed out over there. 😦
If we have a mild winter like last year, it will make up for it 🙂
If we have a mild winter like last year, I’ll be a bit worried. Maybe Gore got his time tables wrong. 😉
I have to agree with everything you just said. NJ definitely got robbed of its beautiful fall. Excellent shots, as always Seth!
Awesome. Fall is a gorgeous time of year and you’ve captured the very essence of the beauty of it. Thanks again…
Welcome Stephanie. I am glad you like the photos.
I love this post! I have always wanted to live somewhere that I could take a leisurely stroll and capture such “life”, and you did it so beautifully!
Thanks! It’s nice right now. In a few weeks, it will probably be cold and miserable. But, I imagine, I’ll be out trying to capture the perfect winter shot! 🙂
I love the reflection pictures! They are my favorite type of pictures. Wonderful shots.
Thanks again. Still have family with you?
Nah, they went back home. Insurance and fema are paying for repairs so they were able to get a plumber in and an electrician . They got hot water and electric just no heat. But since they have power they can use little heaters ( that were given out for free). And since there isn’t a gas shortage anymore everyone can get gas for their cars ( my family has new rented cars the insurance is paying for) and come and go to work or shopping as they please. Things are getting back to normal. Still a long way for repairs and the community…but things are getting better.
Good to hear!
If I were to close my eyes and hear your words, they paint an amazing picture for me to see. You have such a way with words and your camera! Your captions really catch the meaning of each of your photos. Love “alone but not lonely.” Nice job, Sweetpea!
Thanks Therese! Glad you like both.
Wow, great images. You can almost smell the warm air.
Thanks! There is a nice Indian Summer going on!

Beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing with us! I love autumn photography 🙂
Lovely, Seth…a stroll for all of us. Thank you.
You are welcome Sheila. Thanks. 🙂
Wonderful photos indeed!
Thanks. Looks like you live not too far away.
You have a very nice neighborhood. Is that the same pond from the farm pictures? The pond looks the same but there are houses there today. I like the pond a lot.
Yes, but it is looking in the other direction. The farm sits on the other side of the pond.

A man after my own heart, the spirit of an autumn stroll is contained in his pictures here.
Sloping greens had lined up trees, colored differently..you brought the sky at my feet, as I looked at the reflection at the nearby stream. There stood a single twig, alone but not lonely, as sky shined majestically, evergreen bowed refreshingly, branches arched splendidly..I smiled silently and passed the neighborhood with butterflies ..in my mind..happily
Beautiful as usual kalabalu. Thanks so much!
Very nice shots !!!!
Thanks for letting us enjoy the scenery through your eyes — and lens. It was breath-taking!
Thanks so much! 🙂 🙂
You have an elegaic eye.
Thank you 🙂 Maybe I was a greek poet in a previous life? 😉
I love your narratives, they simply make your images appear more meaningful and it’s a really effective way of talking about and displaying your work 🙂
Thanks Rosie. 🙂 You made my day!
Thanks for your visit. One of these days I’m going to figure out how to post my photos. But I’m not a professional by any means. I really like that one of the birch bark looking like the camouflage greens on my niece and nephews army fatigues.
That’s what it’s called-birch tree- I had just responded saying I didnt know the name of it. Thanks! Happy Thanksgiving to you too.
It’s fun and amazing how the internet community can help one another 🙂
At least I think it is a Birch…but it could be another type of tree. Maybe a sycamore? I’ve got silver birth and white birth in my neighborhood and while similar, it may not be a birch at all…
I like the houses reflected in the still pond, and the “Sleepy Tree” (which looks camouflaged!). Nicely done!
Yeah, It’s that white bark tree. Not sure what it’s called. Thanks.
Very nice and extraordinary pictures 🙂
To have a September-type day in November is a definite plus.
Yes David, agreed.
Thanks Hook! 🙂
Glorious colours (esp compared to a very grey England!)
Thanks! Im wishing blue skies to you in England. 🙂
An Indian summer … is gone over here -4C just now. Your photos are – wonderful – and I’m very much an autumn girl. Closer look .. my favorite shot.
Thanks so much. Yeah it’s really warm here right now but that will change soon.
The fire hydrants instantly made me thing of the movie ‘Don’t Look Now’…Only it was set in Venice, and didn’t have sunshine. Just a little figure in a red coat…..
Thanks 😉 Interesting view.
So, so beautiful! I truly appreciate how you help me see the rarest beauty in some of the more common settings.
Thanks Dark Acts Bible. Glad I can help.:)
Beautiful shots! Kudos.
Thanks! You are too kind. 🙂
You are so welcome, thank you
I really enjoy your work! 🙂
Thanks so much tamberrinoartstudio.
Beautiful! You have made me want to move as I am incredibly jealous! I live in NORTHERN Canada we are already into full out winter, and our fall season only generally lasts about 2 weeks! I can live vicariously through your pictures I guess!
Wow, two weeks. I would love to visit Northern Canada though.
Seth: Great depth of field…I love depth of field shots. Really sharp and crisp. Nice composition.
Thanks! Glad you like them. I find that hard to do!
Seth, your photos are fantastic!
Thanks! Glad you like.
Some of the photos look almost like exceptionally good paintings/
Thanks! It was.
Yes the simple things become elegant in your viewfinder.
Thanks Lanier! 🙂
I just have to say WOW. Your photos looks awesome! Where is this taken? 🙂
These are in Warren County, Ohio.
What a lovely walk.
It was. Thanks so much!!
AnElephantCant ever post another snap, but will stick with silly rhymes in future!
Your stuff is great.
Thanks! Glad you enjoy them AnElephantCant
Ohio has been blessed with a beautiful fall but I know we’ll be dreaming of a white Christmas soon. Happy Thanksgiving!
Yes, a white Christmas would be nice. I don’t think we had one last year.
“Sleepy tree” is particularly stunning.
Thanks. Glad you like that old sleepy tree.
They’re all good images. But, Endless Sidewalk brought me back for a second look. It’s really appealing, Seth. Maybe it’s the red fire hydrant’s contrast, or the angel it was shot from. It’s a keeper.
Thanks cliff. Glad you like that one 🙂
awesome pics! 🙂
Thanks y’all. Have you been able to meet up with any of the One Direction members?
No not yet, but me and my best friend who runs the blog togheter are gonna go on one of their concerts in may 🙂
